Interview with a Bundles recipient

Today, I went to Presbyterian Hospital and had the pleasure of interviewing/meeting a new mom that had received one of our bundles!

Chantel Brown is the proud mother of her new baby girl, Trinity.   Trinity was born on April 16th, 2012.

Chantel stated that she was thrilled to get a Baby Bundle and that it was going to help her with Trinity so much!  She has 2 other children who are 1 and 4 and she had not kept a lot of the items from those children that she would need for Trinity (Trinity’s name was picked out by her uncle because she is the 3rd child).   The day that the Baby Bundle was given to her by her social worker, she went through all the items and loved everything!  The Baby Bundle was a “true gift” according to Chantel.

Chantel is planning on re-donating all of the items in the Baby Bundle once Trinity is done using them.

Volunteer Event

On March 27th, 2012, we had another great volunteer event at the Baby Bundles office!    We were hugely successful in sorting through all of the great donations that have come in and in making another 15 Bundles!  A big “THANKS” to everyone who came out to help!  Keep an eye on the website and Facebook for upcoming Volunteer Events and contact us if you are interested in being added to our email updates!

Christ Church Family Service Night

On Friday, February 10th, Christ Episcopal Church hosted a Family Service Night and over one hundred family members showed up to give their time to organizations helping others in our community.  Baby Bundles was thrilled to be one of the participating service agencies chosen and with all the manpower at Christ Church, we were able to sort dozens of bags of donated infant clothing and essentials.  Children of all ages and parents all worked hard side by side and did an outstanding job sorting the baby clothes and donations.  It was a really fun night and the spirit of serving others was in the air.  A big thanks to Christ Church and Lindsay Full and Anne Cullen from the Children and Family Ministries Team for inviting Baby Bundles to be a part of this very special night of service!

Volunteer Day with the ladies of Myers Park Presbyterian Church

A big Baby Bundles “Thank You” to the ladies of Myers Park Presbyterian Church for volunteer their time to help Baby Bundles sort through clothing and getting it ready to be Bundled!

It was held on Thursday, January 26, 2012 at The learning Collaborative in No Da.  10 moms showed up to help sort!  This was out first “off site” volunteer event which was as big success.  We are so grateful to Sally Helweg for organizing it, Myers Park Presbyterian Church, and this amazing group of women who stepped up to serve Baby Bundles with their time and support!
